I have been in the Salon industry for over 25 years. Alison and I have worked together for all of those years.
It never gets boring here. My passion is doing colors and cuts. I see my clients heads as a 3 dimensional canvas that I get to paint and arrange. I loved playing beauty shop as a child but now I get to play it for real and I get paid for it. What a concept!
Over the years, my clients and the stylists here have become friends and have supported me over the difficult times in life. I lost my son Austin in a boating accident and I keep his memory alive by holding an art supply drive each year. The donations are brought directly to Helen Devos Children's Hospital to benefit the children there.
Martha Stewart shares a birthday with me which is rather ironic because I'm often seen arriving at work with flour on my nose and come bearing a dessert of some sort. I love baking and I make all of the birthday dessert's for the staff at the Salon. The stylists here are always dreaming of being thinner, but their dreams are often interrupted by the sound of their own chewing...of my desserts. I'm for hire too, if you need that special dessert!
